“Typical desalination processes can be taxing on the environment, especially coastal communities,” the team wrote on their Indiegogo page . They add, “Unlike traditional methods that require a huge amount of power, typically generated by burning fuel oil, SAROS uses clean, renewable wave energy and produces zero emissions and minimal salt brine concentration.” According to them, by eliminating the need to produce energy with their wave-powered device, they can offer clean drinking water at half the price of existing plants.

It’s a noble idea with several other potential applications, including filtering plastic from oceans and seas.

They’ve received multiple awards, including the coveted Thomas Edison Award in 2014, and recently opened a second branch in Wilmington, North Carolina to continue their research and development. + SAROS
